Show me your desk - books by Stylo Fantome, May Sage, London Miller and Ivy Asher


Back again after a break. So on the lower left handside of my desk is the money pot and a pen. Moving up is the stack of books I bought from the RARE 19 events. I bought books from Stylo Fantome, May Sage, London Miller and Ivy Asher - all of them gracious, beautiful and glamorously turned out. 

Most of the  authors were all beautiful women - so RARE19 it could have easily been a social media meet and greet event of Youtube beauty influencers and creatives, only with authors and their books. It was a glamorous event with a good feel atmosphere so you can see why fans flock. It's a real day out!

These are all new authors to me as I attended the event out of curiosity. Last year, I happened to come across an indie author's page who had a blog post on it, so I found out more details and went. 

There was no real method to buying the books, I just happened to arrive, and there where so many people so it was tables that really caught my eyes. The first was beautiful and glamorous Stylo Fantome and equally beautiful and glamorous her assistant. I approached the table and got talking to a fan who recommended a book which I bought.

After milling around, I had a chat with London Miller and her assistant. She explained what the term SAFE meant on Amazon, apparently it means no cheating. She also suggested two of her books, standalone so I got them.  Then I went to May Sage who also is stunning. She was talking to a friend who suggested what books I too. I'm not a big paranormal vamp fan so they gave me other suggestions - so I got her King of Ruin with is her first fantasy novel, and another novella Shy Girls Write Better. We got talking about book covers and she is very meticulous about her book cover process and she gets exclusive rights etc. Below is a picture I took for my post yesterday. 


Her friend had just finished a reverse harem series, which I'd never read - I mean the genre so the friend recommended Ivy Asher who she called the Queen of Reverse Harems. So I found myself at her table and she recommended one of her books to try out, which was April's Fool, a collaboration with another author.  I guess that was my book haul, all signed by the authors. 

Back to my desk, next is my pre-loved desk arranger which I recused from the bin. It had pens, a ruler, and some glue. Yes, my pen holder is gone, but I think this is much better suited. Beyond that coming down to the right hand side is a bottle of medicated mouth wash, a pencil sharpener, some face cream and a packet of tissues. After that is a sample toothbrush I got from my dentist. I'll try it out soon. Finally is my purple book which I just scribble notes in.

Daily Writing Journal: Mo Money Challenge - week 8 which means £8 in the tin!

£8 in coins So I'm on my second week on saving and still not sure. I'm not feeling the pinch per se, but it's hard thinking how am I going to maintain this. So I managed to get a few coins out and gather some change, but at some point I'll really need to organise this. I've put in four fifty pence pieces with come up to two pounds sterling and the rest in pound coins.  Remember the money tin from last week. Well it all went inside that.... How am I feeling? Slightly bored but I still have a long way to go..... Saving money is boring, spending is more interesting.

Searching for office christmas party venue, celebrating Momma AG birthday.

Rang to sing Momma A G happy birthday! Got to work early and did some of my goal work. Also Accounting Guru Boss showed me an easy way of planning. She is a genius. It's that simple so I'm going to practice her method of planning.  I must say I've learn plenty. Working with her is like one long professional master class with private tuition.  Glamorous colleague also gave me tips on completing a goal related task. All tasks are like elephants tackle the largest on in the morning. Red Jumper colleague took the day off for Black Friday. Apparently he's waking up at early to go on the internet looking for deals after which he'll go to the shopping centre. Told him I was going to wait until boxing day to get a new purse. Then after all the excitement he was like 'What am I going to do on Cyber Monday." Glamorous and I went looking for some where for our team christmas lunch. She wasn't having us eat in a pub. She has high standards. She was okay abo

Daily Writing Journal - #6 my urban lit African American romance. Went Christmas Shopping in House of Fraser and John Lewis.

Not much going. Well, it's Christmas! I went shopping yesterday after work to get some presents. I still have plenty more. House of Fraser is a good place to go. I feel it misses a lot of traffic because it's in between John Lewis and Debenhams.  I'm talking about departmental stores on Oxford Street, London. Okay let's talk about writing. Or maybe not. It's the festive season. In John Lewis , they also had the Elton John Experience. That was nice. I feel compelled to show some pictures but that means downloading all the pictures in my phone. I'll get more organised about this as I go along. Then again this is just a journal of my writing. So writing, well I said I'd skip that but I did manage to write another synopsis. What do you think? Synopsis Angelica Washington is a strong woman takes family responsibility seriously, but things aren't always as perfect as they seem .  A bad family ordeal and an impulsive urge leads her to the arms of a h
